Make Them MoveARGYLE Community Trust is excited to announce that we will be working with Ferrero and the EFL Trust to get kids in Devon and Cornwal moving for the third year.

We’ll be delivering the +Sport Move and Learn Project to 30 primary schools, which encourages children to take part in physical activity, while helping them to understand the importance of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.

Over the course of six weeks, children from year 5 classes spend 45 minutes in the classroom learning about the body, nutrition and the importance of exercise, through participating in interactive activities. The second half of the 90 minute session is dedicated to playing football, dodgeball or handball, with two weeks spent on each sport.

A spokesperson from Ferrero said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing the +Sport Move & Learn Project to Devon and Cornwall for a third year. Since we piloted the Kinder + Sport initiative in the UK three years ago, we have already moved over 100,000 children from across the country. Active children are more likely to grow into active adults, so we are passionate about inspiring future generations in communities across the UK to get active and live well. The EFL Trust is the perfect partner; football clubs are at the heart of their communities and engage and inspire people from all generations – and this is exactly what we want to do with Kinder + Sport in the UK.”

Argyle Community Trust Health Ambassador and midfielder for the Pilgrims, Graham Carey, is a huge supporter of the Kinder + Sport Move and Learn Project, saying: “It’s vital that we educate children from a young age on a healthy diet and encourage an active lifestyle. The Kinder +Sport Move and Learn Project is a really fun and interactive project engaging thousands of children each year. I’m extremely proud to be able to support such an important programme”.
